I was fired because I called a co-worker b*tch and this violated the respect in the workplace policy- never mind that said co-worker had been harassing me for six months and violated federal law! I made my supervisors aware of this, and still had to work with the co-worker; until I had reached the end of my
On top of that the employer appealed my unemployment claim and won, and at my age no-one wants to hire me. What can I do?

Saw this post on Facebook or somewhere and saved it because it's SO true and sharing it with this group.

2- NEVER trust a dispatcher.
3- Never enter any place you don't know how to get out of. Throw the brake, set the 4 ways and walk yourself in. always make sure you can get out.
4-. Don't screw over the next guy. Leave the truck... see more
So last week I had to change sleep schedules a few times because of the timing of the loads. I ended up having a 10hr break and was able to grab a full nights sleep but then a half hour into my drive I was told to take another 10hr break. Of course I couldn’t sleep again so soon so when that ended and my dispatcher sent me out with a new load I was dead tired a few hours into the route. I pulled into the next stop and called in to let them know I... see more
My manager is unpredictable--he takes his anger out on his coworkers, myself included. It makes our office a hostile environment. I don't want to speak up since he is my supervisor, but I hate coming to work. Anyone have experience with this?

I'm an IT professional by trade. I left my last job due to a military move. I couldn't find work in the new location because I didn't fit the demographic (not a local, and too qualified). I decided I'd be a stay at home mom and focus on my college studies instead. Three years later, we are back in the US, and I'm having a really hard time finding employment. I've applied to lots of opportunities, even entry level ones - and no luck so far. It... see more
My truck broke down last week and the supervisor shows up and tells me it’s MY fault because I did not do a good enough pre-trip. What happened was my other idiot supervisor strapped down a tire onto the catwalk and the strap broke, wrapped around my driveline and then tore up all my airlines. I told her it wasn’t me that did that. She then FLIPS out on me gets in my face and says that she doesn't need my attitude WHAT?!!!. The whole time I tried... see more
